There ARE Coupons for Healthful Foods: Part 2

In honor of today being Coupon Inserts in Your Newspaper Day (barring any extreme-couponing thieves, of course), I give you another serving of SAVINGS! I am constantly on the lookout for printable coupons for healthful foods. They can be hard to find, but they are out there. As I mentioned in the first coupon post, before you shop, be sure to visit the websites and Facebook pages of the companies whose products you purchase to check for coupons, and if you don't see any, ASK! Sign up for their newsletters, rewards programs and mailing lists to be notified of future savings as well.

Also keep in mind that "healthful" means different things to different people. I am just relaying information on where to find savings on products that are marketed as healthful/natural/organic, and you of course will decide for yourself what you deem healthful and what you will or will not purchase. :)

Newman's Own Organics: Three coupons, $.50 off any dressing, marinade, pasta sauce, salsa, popcorn or drink, $1.00 off and Thin & Crispy pizza, $1.00 off any Sweet Enough cereal. Newman's Own was started by actor Paul Newman and author A.E. Hotchner. Newman donated all of the profits from product sales to various charities/causes (over $300 million through 2010). His daughter Nell Newman started Newman's Own Organics as a division of Newman's Own, and it later became its own company. They produce a variety of organic foods such as chocolate bars, popcorn, cookies, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Food Should Taste Good: $1.00 off any 5.5 oz or larger bag of chips. Food Should Taste Good makes a line of all natural tortilla chips in a long list of flavors. The company also has a program called Food Should Do Good through which they donate to various charities. 

Kalona SuperNatural (aka Kalona Organics): $.25 off any 6oz yogurt product and $.50 off any product including milk (buttermilk and chocolate milk too), sour cream, cottage cheese, half 'n half and whipping cream. Kalona Organics produces minimally processed dairy products and eggs that come from family farms, mainly in the Midwest. They also produce under the Hy-Vee HealthMarket label.

Gluten Free Sensations: Collect 10 UPC codes and send in completed form, get a free product.

Udi's Gluten Free Foods: $1.00 off any product. Udi's produces gluten-free breads/buns, bagels, pizza crust, granola and muffins.

LIGHTLIFE: No active coupons when I checked, but join here for access to coupons when they are issued. LIGHTLIFE produces a wide variety of non-meat, vegetable protein-based foods such as frozen entrees, hot dogs and sausages and lunch meats. Since the company started 30 years ago, 5% of their net profits have been donated to organizations that protect children, human rights and the environment.

I have earned over $300 in Amazon gift cards in the year and a half I have been a Swagbucks member, and this is with very little effort, absolutely no strings attached. So what does this have to do with coupons? You can now log into your Swagbucks account, and from the Earn menu, select Coupons. For every coupon you print and redeem, you will earn 10 Swagbucks. It's powered by, so always check Swagbucks' coupons first before going to Mambo Sprouts or itself so you can print your limit of a certain item while also accruing Swagbucks after you redeem them.


  1. You are seriously super woman! :) You cook these amazing meals too? I could learn so much from you!!! I will be using your tips for these savings on healthier foods. I really wanted to buy organic milk the other day, but when I saw it was $6 per gallon I just couldn't. I need to get over that and just buy it! :)

    Thanks for the great info! LOVE your design!

  2. Thanks so much April! :) I hate to turn this into a "preachy" blog about why I eat the way I do, but I will say that for other reasons, we limit our milk intake, so I can somewhat stomach the $3.49-$4.19 I pay for a half gallon of milk more so than if we went through a few gallons a week like I know some families do!
